Stop Playing the Victim

Mar 22, 2011

There are many ways to play the victim when problems arise at work. Here are the top six:

1. IGNORE the problem.
2. DENY your involvement.
3. BLAME someone, or something, else.
4. RATIONALIZE and justify why another person should take care of it.
5. RESIST any attempt that others make to get you involved.
6. HIDE in order to avoid dealing with it.

Have you ever done any of these? At one time or another, we have all played the victim. While the easier route, it does nothing to forward you professionally, or personally.
